Infinite Loop iPad and iPhone stand seeking Kickstarter funding [video]

 

The Infinite Loop is a rather clever stand that you can use for your iPad or iPhone. It has been designed by Tim Gushue and it is currently seeking funding from Kickstarter.

The InfiniteLoop is a simple solution to making the iPad truly useful. It helps the iPad to deliver on it’s versatility when reading in bed, watching a movie on a plane or doing Facetime on the go. The InfiniteLoop was born out of the frustration with not being able to find an iPad stand that could accommodate all uses.

It is basically a loop of slim bendable metal coated in a plastic material that you can bend into many shapes; to fit different usage scenarios. Because of the way it bends, it has a huge advantage over other products. Another advantage is the way it holds your device; it is not device specific which means any new iPads or iPhones will not require a new stand. It will also be available in a mini version suitable for your iPhone.

The designer is looking for funding of $27,500 before going into production, it has already gained over $7000 in pledges with 27 days left to run.

Take a look at the video after the break and let us know what you think, hit or miss?

Definitely a hit! I think of it as a cooler and way more versatile version of the gorillapod! Keep going!

Wow, im a engineering/designer, and that is quite dumb. Not very practical. People are going to get so mad when they can't get it to look like the video CAD models he shows. But I agree there isn't that 'one' case that solves all your stand needs for the iPad

Hi Chris,
I was wondering if you had any plans of writing an update to this article with details of how much of a failure it has been, especially considering that its now almost a year since it was funded and there are still people who have not received their items and some people (like myself) who have received extremely poorly made/broken items that in no way reflect the item that was described in the project.
I think it would be a good followup article to write, especially since it seems the person behind the product, Tim Gushue, seems to have totally removed himself from the project and no longer has anything to do with it. Instead people who funded the project are left with only an email address to contact of a faceless company and are receiving no replies at all.
$82,000 down the drain on a product that could of been so awesome.
